Wine maven who loves a great Napa Cabernet or Meritage. Really enjoy finding new wines to try.
This is my Hurricane Harvey wine. After being housebound by flooding for 6 days I decided to open this gem from Morlet which shows all the classic Knight's Valley character I love. It is a treasure of cassis, black currants, incense and sandalwood, tar and menthol. Black pepper and spice box. The palate is a layered as is the nose, with a succulentdark fruit core framed with understated, fine,, mouthcoating tannins. 15.0% alcohol — 2 years ago
This was our NYE wine. Bryant Family was the first really great wine I ever had many years ago (a 1995 if I recall). This bottle brought me right back to that experience. I love the flavors of this wine. A bit woodsy with some cassis and a little black truffle mixed in. Perfectly balanced. The 2010's are ready to drink now 🍷😊 — a year ago
This 2009 reserve is drinking nicely now. Lots of tobacco up front, then black cherry, a bit of raspberry, and minerality dominate the palette. Big wine that needed time to open up and show its stuff. Happy to have tried it, not quite sure it was my cup of tea (but it was close!) — 2 years ago
This is my second time trying Delectus wines and so far I love them. I've had the Julia, this is the 2013 Boulder Falls Cabernet. This is a big, chewy cab that I probably should have waited on. But it definitely opened up after 2 hours. Flavors of ripe black cherry and raspberry dominate with some sweet oak on the finish. These folks do some nice wine coming out of Knights Valley. — 2 years ago
